The weather was rainy and cool. I wore a sweater and was comfortable both walking from the parking lot to the theater and inside during the show..

I liked the production but the idea that these two people were poison for each other really didn't come through very well. I never saw the movie version but I have seen Streisand sing "People" and this actress could really belt out the songs, very...continued

The lead was great and the rest of the cast was good. It made for a very enjoyable afternoon!

Fanny Brice's character has a great singing voice and is very humerous. There were some songs that were not in the movie "Funny Girl" with Barbara Steisand. Nicky Arnstein has a good singing voice, but his character could have been a bit stronger.

Description

Funny Girl is a musical with a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nicky Arnstein.

The musical was produced by Ray Stark, who was Brice’s son-in-law via his marriage to her daughter Frances, and starred Barbra Streisand. The production was nominated for eight Tony Awards but, facing tough competition from Hello, Dolly!, it failed to win in any categories.
